Ruby's Rainbow: Tags
Good morning! It's time for another fun challenge from Ruby's Rainbow! This fortnight our challenge was chosen by Jacqui and I have to admit it was a tough one for me.... You see, I am not an out of the box thinker! I really admire the tags that others design...but had a hard time coming up with a plan. I finally decided to go with a birthday theme....
I used a fun Changito image...doesn't he look excited! LOL He is so darn cute! I colored the image with pencils, used Nestabilities to diecut and layer, then added a some Swarovski crystals. I used a PTI die to cut my tag out of DP, added some grosgrain ribbon, popped up my image and added a candle to finish. I decided to re-purpose a Crystal Light container, so I covered it with number paper to carry out the birthday theme. I forgot to take a picture of the top, but the lid is decorated with as well; I diecut a circle of DP and mounted it on a scallop circle. This ought to come in handy; my daughter turns 14 later this summer, plus it always seems like there is always a birthday party for her to attend. (She went to one last night and I was REALLY SURPRISED when she asked me if she could pick out a card for her friend! You see, she usually makes fun of my hobby...I was touched that she wanted one of my creations! I told her to pick anything she wanted....)
